Crossing universes through wormholes

(Since 2010, gender fluid artist Beau Devereaux has chronicled their romantic and turbulent process of self-identification as Samantha Glass through the use of electronics, field recordings and a seductive, baritone voice. Abstract soundscapes rise and fall around addictively brooding ballads and introspective monologues as Glass deconstructs themself beneath the weight of their poetry and lyrics. 
Devereaux spent most of their adult life engrossed in noise, power violence and punk DIY scenes, however Glass sought to create a balanced form of art representative of their ever fluid sexuality and gender identity while incorporating elements of dark wave, musique concrète and New Age music. Samantha Glass evolved into an outlet for drag-based performance art coupled with drum machines, cassette loops and down-tempo crooning. 
Glass richly crafts each composition around deeply rooted biographical and contemporary themes, reverently embodying an enticing blend of outsider art).
